Marc Hebrart Rive Gauche Rive Droite 2012 Champagne

$ 159.99

The 2012 Brut Rive Gauche-Rive Droite Grand Cru brings together all the best elements of Marc Hebrart's style. Ample, creamy and inviting, the Rive Gauche-Rive Droit is a magnificent, thrilling Champagne. Pastry, baked apple, mint, vanillin and spice all fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly, and yet it is sense of poise that leaves the deepest impression. What a gorgeous wine this is. The blend is 50% Pinot from Aÿ and 50% Chardonnay from Oiry, Chouilly and Avize. Disgorged: January 23, 2018. Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media

The 2012 Rive Gauche – Rive Droite Extra Brut Grand Cru is a blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir from Oiry, Chouilly and Avize (with malolactic but no filtration). Pure, bright and fine yet deep and complex on the nose, this barrel-fermented assemblage is very elegant and fruity on the palate, perfectly round and well-balanced, with good mineral grip and tension in the pure, finessed, refreshing and even salty finish. This has very nice purity and freshness on the palate, with sweet cherry, red fruit and lush fruit aromas and flavors. Disgorged in October 2017 as Extra Brut. Tasted in April 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
